Candace Derickx: See Mummy Juggle


Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30

Misery Loves Company

I just finished Day 1 on Week 2 of Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30 and I think I’m now finally in the right frame of mind to write this post.

So here goes: help me.

Ooops! Hehehe, how did that slip in there? I meant, join me. Join me and we can both suffer together…, I mean support each other through this incredible workout.


If you’re not familiar with Jillian Michaels from TV’s The Biggest Loser, then consider yourself lucky. She is one of the meanest, er, I mean well-meaning individuals you’ll ever see. She is 100% determined to get you in shape. And even I have to admit, through my cries of pain, I am seeing a difference after only a week. I’m positive that after 30 Days, I will indeed be ripped, physically, if not emotionally as well. That is, of course if I can make it through.

You see, I’ve attempted a Jillian Michaels workout before. I tried several times in fact to make it through her 30-Day Shred, but the furthest I’ve ever gotten is Day 14. What makes me think this time will be different?

Why you, of course. Because misery loves company and that is clearly what I’ve been lacking before. A compadre. A comrade in arms. A person to bitch with when I can’t stand to look at her face for just one more second. Yes. I need a friend.

So, if you’ve suddenly hit the panic button on swimsuit season, then leave a comment at the bottom telling me if you’ve got what it takes to take on Jillian Michaels.  For bonus entries, follow Chris from @FSOttawa on Twitter who was cruel, I mean kind enough to offer up an extra copy of Ripped in 30 Days for my readers. Be sure to message Chris on Twitter to tell him you're really looking forward to the agony he was so thoughtful to share.
